We got two versions of the veggie platter, which included white rice, roti (a piece of wheat bread similar to a tortilla in size) and a choice of two vegetarian entrees. There were four vegan options and so we got one of each: aloo gobi (cauliflower in a tomato sauce), yellow dal (lentils), cabbage and okra.
The food achieved its taste through a nice use of spices and was less oily than most Indian restaurants in the area. The portions were relatively small for each of the dishes, which meant that in combining all of the food together, we had enough to eat but weren’t overly stuffed.
This is a nice place to check out. The dine in facilities are modest and so don’t go here if you have a romantic date to impress. There are several clean tables at the edge of the store but you will be dining among the aisles of grocery items.
The grocery store is stocked with all of the staples of Indian cuisine and so is worth checking out in its own right, with lots of spices to experiment with in your own kitchen. Also, they have frozen foods, with several delicious varieties of samosas worth checking out.
The food is tasty and their minimal use of oil is to be commended. In our opinion, using lots of oil is an often-used shortcut to make food taste more delicious, but in the long run, minimizing oil is a key to healthy eating. All in all, Deepam India is worth checking out!
